2128 N Halsted (north of Armitage), circa 1987, Chicago.

This 1888 building must have a curse - no retailer seems to be able to stay in business here. Its been vacant for the last 5 years.

Although, it does have a second life as an event space - Just last year I attended a wedding on the roof. A really cool building.

Looking north on Lake Shore Drive at the Grant Monument, 1888, Chicago.
Note that the statue of Grant had yet to be attached to the base and how close LSD comes to the monument.
Evidently a child drew on the images, adding palm trees.
